Take on the Tarka Trail for your next break

North Devon

For the challenge of the 'Exmoor Beast' 100km/100m cycle sportive, or a gentle potter along the Tarka Trail with the family, North Devon is the place.

There is a whole calendar of cycling events in North Devon to suit competitive riders of all abilities. From road races to the national 4x circuit, there's absolutely loads going on. 

Quiet roads, stunning scenery, and some challenging hill climbs make this area a popular choice for road cyclists. Adrenaline junkies can find some mountain biking, a 4x park, some trails (dirt jumps), and great skate parks. 

The Tarka Trail is perfect for families, with miles of relatively flat, traffic-free pathways that take in some beautiful bucolic scenery. There are lots of places to stop along the way for a bit to eat along with  plenty of accommodation options. Great bike shops operate in the area offering top mechanics, parts, new bikes and cafes to re-fuel.
